Rituals, Emotions and food

Inside the rituals of two happy businesses. Over the last couple of months a few people have come up to me to tell me stories about things their companies do.

Firstly Andy Puleston – a Radio 1 alumni – came up to me and chatted to me about some of the things they did during the Andy Parfitt reinvention. Pizza meetings, heroic leaving speeches and lots of private offices filled with eclectic music and chat. I’ve let this run on because I found it fascinating. Ask me one time how I applied to get a job at Radio 1. Had an interview with Andy Parfitt and everything. Ah well.

Secondly we talk to Claudia Wallace (née Newman) – Head of New Business at Young and Rubicon. She tells me about Crisp Thursday and their Start the Week meeting. I loved this chat.
